Shevchenko set for Chelsea return

On-loan AC Milan striker Andriy Shevchenko is set to return to Stamford Bridge this summer, after his agent revealed it is unlikely he will stay at the San Siro beyond the end of the season. The Ukrainian has disappointed since moving back to Italy following an unproductive two-season stint in west London, struggling to displace either Alex Pato or Filippo Inzaghi up front for Carlo Ancelotti's side. The 32-year-old has made only two league appearances this season as well as featuring in both the UEFA Cup and Coppa Italia, scoring once in each. And with the former Ballon d’Or winner - who netted nine goals in 47 league games for the Blues - unlikely to be retained by the Rossoneri - his agent has predicted the striker will return to London.

“Shevchenko is a player on loan at Milan from Chelsea and I think he will return to London,” he told

“Frankly, I don’t think it’s possible that the Rossoneri decide to keep him.

“I don’t know what kind of rapport he has found with Ancelotti and his team-mates, the only problem is that he is a player on loan, given how the season has gone, I think Andriy will return to Chelsea.

"But I don't think the doors of Italy will re-open for him next season.”
